Another Filipino tested positive for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Singapore, the country’s health department confirmed Saturday.
The Ministry of Health said the second Filipino case in Singapore is a 41-year-old domestic worker, who is now in isolation in Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.
Health officials said she contracted the virus from her 61-year-old Singaporean employer.
According to the ministry, the employer was infected with COVID-19 despite having no recent travel history to virus hotspots, such as China and South Korea’s Daegu and Cheongdo.
The first Filipino who contracted the virus in Singapore was discharged last Friday after he “fully recovered” and was declared “stable” by the health ministry.
